Christmas came early for a family in Walsall after colleagues from leading Midlands’ landlord whg responded to their DIY SOS.
The Asset Management PMO Team stepped into action after customer Leanne Webb issued a plea for help in creating a sensory room for her young son, Dylan, who has Autism and ADHD.
They spent five days transforming part of the kitchen of her home in Bentley into a peaceful retreat for the seven-year-old, complete with mood lighting, a hammock, fresh paint and new flooring.
The room was unveiled to the family two days before Christmas, with Santa also paying a visit.
Connie Jennings, Head of Health and Wellbeing, said: “We are always looking at what we can do to improve the lives of our customers. This sensory room will make a huge difference to the family and we’re delighted we were able to step in and help.
“My thanks go to contractors Blyth Group who are currently installing wet rooms in some of our bungalows, who carried out the work.”
Leanne said: “Dylan sometimes needs his own space when things get too much for him.
“This sensory room will give him the space he needs to help keep him calm.”
“I’m so grateful to both whg and Blyth for doing this and really appreciate all the hard work that’s gone into it.”
Blyth Director Richie Hubball said: “We’re glad to help such a worthy project, especially at this time of year.”
